I believe this is the best first set of the spring run. And ye, pay your attention to Stella Blue.

Subject: Fantastic show, OK recording
It is simply a brilliant first set, one of my favorites. 5 stars for performance, 3 stars for recording. Check out Sugaree and Lazy Lightning. Very tasty indeed.
Subject: My first Dead concert!
25 years later it is a pleasure to listen to this - what a long strange trip it has been! Thanks for making this available.
I do not remember much from the show after all those years. What I do remember was a stunning song, early in the concert, where 3 or 4 of the musicians did a solo, 1 after the other (at the time I did not know who was who!). The song built and built up to a huge crescendo - I was blown off my feet, and that is why I am still listening after 25 years.
And the song? it was the first set version of New Minglewood Blues, where Brent, Bobby og Jerry play solos one after another and finally all hell breaks loose.... Brent's hammond organ sounds fantastic on this song...
Many thanx again for a fantastic show!
